I stopped by the above bike rally on Sunday. Full-on sunlight, dust and wind for the entire shoot. Most of this video was shot at ISO 100 and cranked up to 22 often. Didn’t have any ND filters with me. The FCP export didn’t look as washed out as the version running through Brightcove. Not sure why.
Everyone I spoke with was super friendly. I arrived at a dead part of the day, most of the riders were out on the poker run. I think I saw the winner received $1500, so it was a pretty good payout.
There were two Hooters girls over in the dunk tank who couldn’t understand who I was shooting for. They kept shouting “hey camera guy.” At least the weather was warm enough for them. But they didn’t make the video.
